The landscape is an overall genre name and covers all kinds of nature scenes: mountains, deserts, ocean, forest, lake, etc. On this site, the gallery contains all nature images that I didn’t include in other, more specialized galleries.
Also, I run Sunrise Workshops, check them out.
So what is a landscape? It is a photography genre that shows some space within the world, and it can be vast as well as tiny. It includes nature scenes with or without human-made objects. Often, it is further divided into subgenres such as desert, mountains, ocean, city photography and others. The reasons behind doing landscape pictures could be different. Some people enjoy preserving memories, other would like to share their vision, yet others try to help to protect nature.

In general, landscape photography requires photographers to wake up early and go to sleep late. The best time for the action is “blue hour” and “golden hour”. Normally, we have to be at the photo spot 40-60 minutes before sunrise and 1-2 hours after it. The rest of the day is not as good. Also, if the aim is night photography and stars, then it can be any hour of the night depending on the Milky Way position. This genre is considered one of the most popular and thus competitive. In the modern era, a lot of people have a camera and access to editing tools making the world of photography more accessible and more diverse at the same time.
Locations for this gallery are numerous. In fact, almost every photo is from a different place! I have included this info in the descriptions for your convenience. There are shots from the Carpathian Mountains in Ukraine, Twizel in New Zealand, Kiev, Crimea, Clovelly in Sydney, Blackheath, Plitvice Lakes and others.
